EPA Administrator McCarthy: NRDC/NEWMOA TSCA

The 22 undersigned organizations work to address public health and environmental concerns of communities across the United States. We are very concerned with the impacts of mercury pollution on human health, wildlife and the environment. We are writing to you today to support the petition filed by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA) on June 24, 2015 to issue a rule requiring companies which import, produce, or use mercury (or mercury compounds) in manufacturing processes to provide data regarding these activities. A national mercury inventory was promised by EPA nearly a decade ago and these data are necessary to fulfill that promise
